Re: Personal blogs. Definition of the requirements - will be completed by 15 January  

There should a mobile application also which should focus on strengthening the bond of Asgardians. The app should comprise blogs, news about our nation, links to the ministries of the government and an easy access for Asgardians reach each other.

can you setup a self hosted server of ???

** OpenVPN (a self service is necesary for keep secure communications team leaders and others)

* Diaspora (alternetive to facebook)

** gnusocial (alternetive to tweeter)

** tox/kontak/conversations (encripted point to point whatapp alternative)

** netcloud (file sharing)

** proton mail is a CERN mail service project, exmaple of double autentication, fisrt pass for username, second pass for access to mailbox is a good choise for security better that phonenumber (i see many people that lost their phonenumber and cant access to whatasapp or gmail/outlook) (see more


** first for security (secure accounts login, antisurveillance, maybe multigeopositions servers)

** second for generate better community coordination and better organization

** thirtd will increse self-identity, self-esteem for the people into the Asgardia project

(move this comment to respective post directory if is necesary)

I suggest we use WhatsApp to cummunicate , facebook doesn't work in China !

yes, think that a big group is confused but we need first a private communication (no public) in this plataform for start coordinations, and send messages between users for first locale meetings, we cant post a email or phonenumber here

Personally, I think Asgardia should concentrate on giving it's citizens a solid foundation to build upon. You get the basics right, and leave the fancy tangents like this to us with our personal projects. A nation is built up from thriving innovation and the success of its citizens, don't try to control us, help us flourish.

You can post email and phone numbers here - it'd be a bit stupid to though. It doesn't get much more wise once there's a lesser public area to conduct interpersonal conversations.

Whatsapp isn't a particular clever option with regards to communications. Instead of using something based on XMPP that's been bastardised and neutered of all security and privacy capabilities, we could just instead deploy actual XMPP and not shoot ourselves in the face in the process.

The OpenVPN should be trivial, but not for passing traffic forwards - for creating an "Asgardian only" area it'd work though, the bandwith for that many clients using it for all their traffic would require multiple additional nodes preferably in mulitple geographically distributed locations - it'd be easy to sink a few grand a month, maybe ten, into the hardware hosting to make it work for passing all traffic.

Tox wouldn't be overly clever to deploy, anything claiming to enhance privacy whilst collecting a list of geographically relevant peers whilst also opening itself up to several attacks that'd make it trivial to cripple the network, isolate or redirect other users, and othersuch retardations should definitely be avoided.

Third party mail services should again be avoided. It's highly likely that such services are already posessed by most. What would make sense is deploying our own mail services - as this wouldn't rely on trusting randoms - but right about now that's unwise just for the six extra servers we'd need to to have hosted to hold the few hundred HD's required to give out even a pittance of 5GB of inbox per citizen. No to mention the headache in rotating three copies of that many HD's every day/week/month in father/grandfather/son rotation as per sane backup strategy.
